Leaving work early to pick up my copy of Mario Tennis Aces. Reviews have been solid and I hear the netcode has been markedly improved. The fundamentals I saw in the demo were great fun, so I'm all in. Can't wait to take my gal Rosalina for a (top)spin!


 
 
 

And that makes a full set! Hyrule Historia, Arts & Artifacts, and now this to round it out. Shut up, I don't have a problem.


 
 
 

"100 hours of community service for publicly masturbating Pokémon Go player". Hey GajKnight, what gives? You didn't tell me you were visiting!


 
 
 

C.Q. Cumber doesn't mess around. He straight-up executes your ass if you don't meet his standards.


 
 
 

For all the Smash coverage that's been on the Treehouse (and it was a lot), they were surprisingly light on the guest characters. I don't think I've seen them use Snake, Cloud or Ryu at all. Too bad! I was looking forward to some detailed Snake footage.

 
 
 
 

And here I was thinking playable Chain Chomp was weird. Also, they just confirmed that Koopa and Blooper will be available for everyone. The online tournaments are only for early unlocks.


 
 
 

They're playing Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure on Treehouse now, and the devs just called it "half as big as the main game". It's okay you guys, I was already going to buy it. You don't have to sell me on it even more.

 
 
 

I'm actually considering digging Smash Bros Brawl out of my games cabinet to get a feel for characters like Snake and Pokémon Trainer again. I loved playing as a few characters who'll now return, but I haven't touched them in ages.

 
 
 

Going through the Smash site, and I'm really digging the character designs for this game. Zero Suit Samus looks so cool! Even her mole kind of works for me now for the first time since it was decided she needed one.


 
 
 

So they're showing Fortnite on Treehouse now. The thing is, I've obviously heard a LOT about Fortnite in the past months. Everything from Battle Royale to meteors on Tilted Towers or whatever. But here's something I haven't heard yet: is it actually fun?

 
 
 

I had hoped there was some more exciting stuff besides Smash, but that one looks great. I like the character redesigns (Zero Suit looks bad.ass.). I'm excited for Pokémon Trainer to be back without his awful gimmick. Loved Ivysaur in Brawl. Also Snake.

 
 
 

I like this mindset: "You assholes are going to whine about characters we left out anyway. So fuck it, have all of them."

 
 
 

I'm excited for the Nintendo stream. I've stopped having specific hopes and expectations a while ago, because every time they give me something I didn't even know I wanted.

 
 
 

I keep forgetting Octopath Traveler is so close already. This means next week I have Mario Tennis Aces, the week after both Crash N-Sane and the NES Classic, and two weeks after Octopath. It's okay Nintendo, you can skip E3. (...please don't skip E3)

 
 
 

Between Steam's semi-recent policy of "Let's allow our marketplace to get flooded with shit" and the current GOG sale, I'm heavily considering migrating to the latter for future purchases.

 
 
 

I like this trailer; it's cute. Though I wonder if "challenge the decision" is an actual mechanic in the game.



 
 
 

This new Wreck-it-Ralph trailer teaches us two things: 1- The old Disney princesses should never be anything other than 2D animation (poor Pocahontas...). 2- Disney can only make one CG lady face, and if they try desperately to mix it up it doesn't work.



 
 
 

I was just playing Mario Tennis Aces and I finally scored my first win by KO. I felt like a rude and bad boy...with just a little bit of schadenfreude. My opponent was winning on points too.

 
 
 

Recently I got it into my head to replay the Mega Man Battle Network series. Today I've been playing the first one, and I found...a thing. Wow.


 
 
 

Playing the Mario Tennis Aces demo now, and it feels really good. If the story mode holds up to its promise, I think I'll like this one a lot. Though admittedly I haven't played online yet, because human interaction scares me.

 
 
 

That's Mega Man 6 beaten, and Legacy 1 complete. 6 was about on par with 5 difficulty-wise, but not as memorable. Current standing: 2 - 5 - 1 - 6 - 3 - 4. Also it's funny how for only being in three games, this has already been ingrained in my head:



 
 
 

For as tough a time I had with Mega Man 4 yesterday, Mega Man 5 was probably the easiest of the lot. Liked this one a lot though, my favorite together with 2. I do have to say I did not expect a "Napalm Man" set in a jungle level in a Mega Man game.

 
 
 

Is it just me or is Mega Man 4 fucking relentless? Everything does tons of damage, long stretches between checkpoints, lots of instant death,and I haven’t found a single boss yet I can kill with the peashooter. I may have to start farming for E tanks...

 
 
 

When last year we were told my dad’s cancer could no longer be treated he had just over a week left. I wish I could be surprised that after his announcement TotalBiscuit only had three. I didn’t know the man at all, but I know the feeling all too well

 
 


About ShadeOfLightone of us since 7:43 AM on 07.16.2010

The Dutch one, Grand Marshal of the Nintendo Defense Force, heckler of GajKnight, and zen personified; I am ShadeOfLight, one of your Community Managers .



I'm a Dutch law PhD who loves to play the vidya. I'm a Nintendo-fanboy at heart, and I could play Zelda games continuously from now until the end of time. I also used to be on the Cblog Recaps team for Thursdays, and I did that for 4 whole years.

Next to Zelda I'm also obsessed with the Monolith Soft RPGs Xenoblade Chronicles and the Baten Kaitos series. I will not pass up the opportunity to mention them, ever, and I consider myself to be Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean's biggest fan. I'm fairly certain Monolith Soft exists specifically to make me happy.



Being the good Nintendo fanboy that I am, the Switch is the new love of my life. I'm on a steady course of turning it into a Nintendo + Indies machine, as Iwata intended.

Even a list of my favorite games across all platforms will be dominated by Nintendo and indie, with a few wild cards here and there.

Besides gaming itself, I like reading up on gaming-related news on my favorite website in the whole wide world: Destructoid. I'm pretty much here all the time. I love all the people here, and I'm glad that I get to be a part of this whole thing. Wouldn't know what to do without you!

And it turns out you guys love me too!
I've had some blogs promoted:
- Because VIDEOGAMES!
- Digital Property: Entering the Third Age
- Better with Age: Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Waifu Wars: Midriff or Bust
- And posted as The Wombat: 2014: I want to make love to you. Seriously.
